AMW Reviews: Black Beauty Silk Conditioner and Hot Oil

If you are into hair care products, today's post is perfect for you!  I've been taking my time reviewing each of the hair care products as we all know, the real results will take approximately 3-4 weeks of usage!

I have received Black Beauty Products a couple of months ago (almost 2 months), after I'm done with my L'Oreal Elseve Conditioner, I used a clarifying lotion to wash off all the product built up and started my conditioning regimen using Black Beauty Silk Conditioner and Black Beauty Hot Oil with Vitamin E.


 Let's start with the conditioner...


Black Beauty says ---
A deep moisturizing formula designed to help repair and nourish dry, damaged hair.  Its all natural formula adds volume to limp hair and detangles hair strands without greasiness.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, etc.. (sorry I can't read the ingredients list, too small)

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Smells great!
  • Prevents tangles.
  • Hair feels soft and light.
  • No greasy-feel!
  • No dandruff. 
  • Available in different sizes making it easy to test if products work for you or not without spending a lot.  Available in 10ml, 120ml, 500ml and 948ml.
Cons
  • May not be moisturizing enough for super dry, sensitized hair.
Tips
  • Same with all conditioners, apply from mid-shaft until tips, try not to apply on the roots as hair may fall limp.
  • Leave conditioner for more than 10 minutes if possible.  
  • Use clarifying shampoos at least once a week to remove product build-up.
Will I repurchase?
Yes

To whom do I recommend this to?
Best used by people who have oily, normal or dry hair!  Extreme dried out hair or sensitized hair may use the Hot Oil Treatment I will be discussing below.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available in all Mercury drugstores nationwide and all SM Hypermart supermarkets for
10ml Php8.75 (approx $0.20)
120ml Php79.75 (approx $1.85)
500ml Php265.50 (approx $6.20)
948ml Php552.00 (approx $12.90)

Easy flip cap just like regular shampoo and conditioner

The conditioner is not too liquid nor too sticky, the texture is just right.

Now let's head on to the more potent version of the Silk Conditioner, the Hot Oil with Vitamin E treatment.


Black Beauty says ---
A natural leave-on treatment SPA for damaged, relaxed or color-treated hair.  Black Beauty Hot Oil is formulated with healthy blend of Vitamins and Protein based nutrients that helps to nourish and rejuvenate hair.  It provides a pleasant, long lasting freshness and cooling-effect to the scalp.

Ingredients: EDTA, Deionized Water, Carbomer, Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth 20, Glyceryl Monostearate, Mineral Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Triethanolamine, Propylene Glycol, Polyquartermium 7, Vitamin E, Silk Protein, Pine Bud Extract, Menthyl Lactate, Preservative, Dimethicone, Fragrance, Panthenol.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • The added cooling-effect on scalp leaves me rejunvenated.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Hair feels soft, tangle-free and light.
  • No greasy-feel.
  • Available in different sizes making it easy to test if products work for you or not without spending a lot.  Available in 20ml, 200ml, 300ml and 948ml.
Cons
  • Scent could be overwhelming to some users.
Tips
  •  If you have extremely dry or sensitized hair, instead of finishing up with a regular conditioner after shampooing, grab a small amount of the Black Beauty Hot Oil treatment with Vitamin E and apply all over hair and treat it like regular conditioner!  Hair will be more moisturized.
  • If you have time, wrap your hair with a shower cap and leave it for at least 15-20 minutes at least once a week.
  • Once signs of irritations occur (since this product can be applied on scalp unlike the conditioner), stop usage immediately!
Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Any hair type that needs the extra boost of moisture.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available in all Mercury drugstores nationwide and all SM Hypermart supermarkets for Php128.00 (approx $3.00) 300ml.

Overall both products targets hair that needed moisture!  It does give the moisture my hair deserves and I find myself waking up with softer, smoother hair.  With regards to the shine, I can't seem to see it for now!

I'm glad Black Beauty is coming up with more products as my mom used to be addicted to Black Beauty Shampoo and that's the only product I knew back then!

Have you tried Black Beauty hair treatment?
It's proudly Philippine made by the way!

    1. That's great! Well I was told their conditioners are their bestselling product aside from the shampoo! So I guess it works for Filipina hair.
